Man record: Miroslav Klose
And 9 June 1978 gave birth in Opole (Poland) a striker who without making much noise is today one of the great legends in the history of the World Cup. From Polish mother (was international with the women's basketball team) and german father (although he played a large part in the French Auxerre), that boy who already has today 36 years is Miroslav Klose, a still active myth of the German soccer team and the top scorer in World Cup history.
Without a great physique, without a spectacular technique in his boots, His football is governed by a prodigious head and an opportunism only comparable to that of the already distant Torpedo Müller. It is like this, How the Bomber has written his name in gold letters in the history of the World Cups. The reason. Con 16 goals, is the greatest scorer in the history of the World Cup, ahead even of a myth like Ronaldo and surpassing the great Just Fontaine. Historical record where there are but not the only one. Klose (71 goals), is already one of the top ten international scorers of all time at the national level.
Another impressive record, with his goals in Brazil 2014, has entered the list of the three players who have managed to score in four World Cups. Klose is not a regular guy. His records with the national team are vastly superior to when he plays in clubs. In none of the three that has been (Werder Bremen, Bayern Munich and Lazio) He has managed to surpass the goals he has scored with the German shirt - despite the fact that a year ago he scored five goals in the same match with the Roman uniform -. In none of them has he felt as a key part as with Loew. Miroslav Klose, the top scorer in World Cup history.
